While on a visit to this park we were disturbed by inappropriate behavior exhibited by other patrons. We will not go back again and will certainly not take children. Do not recommend.

Chessman Park is a lovely space in the city. It is located close to the Botanic Gardens, and has its own beautiful gardens. There is plenty of green space and very nice fountains.

Lovely green space for an early morning walk - lots of dog walkers, joggers and other people walking in the park. Easy access from surrounding area: "Roughly bounded by E. Thirteenth Ave., High St., E. Eighth Ave., and Franklin St., Denver, Colorado"

Expanses of lush green lawns with shady trees, room for a picnic and a few people walking their dogs made this a most pleasant park to walk through and enjoy the views through to the Rockies. Some folks were sharing a picnic with their family...More

Beautiful for summer walks when it is about 70 degrees and so pleasant to be outside. The grass is so green, fresh and pleasant coming from hot southern climates.

I'm lucky enough to work out in the park early in the morning, and the light is stunning. It's a happy place, filled with walkers, runners, dogs on leashes (mostly) and photographers taking pictures of brides, babies and tango dancers. It is an emerald green...More

The signs only mention no bicycles, but if you look at the actual park rules on line at the Denver city website, rollerblading and skateboards are prohibited. They do ticket.
